Breaking Track Records

by | Nov 2, 2015

With 54 riders signed to track, we have aleady broken a record for the club. But there are many more records to break. Feilding track records are the fastest and/or established time, in a timed event in your age group. The list of up to date records can be found under ‘Event Results & records’ on the BikeManawatu website.

Conditions to break a record…

-Must be at Johnston Park, Feilding.

-Rider must be in correct age category, as at 31st December.

Three watches must successfully record the ride, with the middle watch being the official time.

-Gearing restrictions apply to U15 (6.00m) and U17 (7.00m).

When to break a record…

Most records are broken at the club track Championships (500m Time Trial, 200m flying, Individual Pursuit) during racing at the start of 2016. They can also be broken at track meets on Sunday afternoon when timed events are in the programme, these are often 1 lap time trials and flying laps. In this situation please notify the race manager if you want three watches on the time incase you are close to the record. Sometimes if the conditions are good Ian offers people to express interest in breaking a record and a few people test themselves against the clock. If you have your sights set on one that is not a championship event the best thing is to express your interest to Ian at track.

The next step is West Coast North Island records (often broken at WCNI Championships in Wanganui), then National and World Championship records. 

We hope this helps! If you have any questions email Kate (k8.stewart@hotmail.com) or talk to Ian at track.
